The American Council of the Blind of Ohio, (ACB-Ohio) is hosting its first annual tandem rally-fundraiser. Visually impaired stokers and sighted captains will have three routes to choose from, 15, 30, and 60 mile-routes, each starting and ending on the beautiful Kokosing Gap Trail. Sighted tandem teams and single bikes are also welcome. The two longer routes will include the gently rolling hills and some more challenging ones through the beautiful Amish countryside, while the 15-mile route will stay on the trail, which is noted as one of the prettiest and most well maintained rails-to-trails bike paths in Ohio.

Many Ways to Participate:

1. Bring your tandem and your stoker and enjoy a beautiful ride and meet some other folks who enjoy tandem cycling.
2. Bring your tandem and meet your stoker for the day, who might be visually impaired. Many blind folks love to ride, but they need a captain and/or a bike.
3. Volunteer for transportation, registration and/or food stops.
4. Pledge on a rider or sponsor a tandem team.
5. Donate door prizes or give-aways to promote your business.



The American Council of the Blind of Ohio is a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality and equality of life for persons who are blind or visually impaired. We offer information and referral for resources for equipment, talking books, training programs, emotional support, scholarships, and more.

The proceeds from this ride will help sponsor the first annual Building Blocks for a Brighter Future, a seminar for families of children who are visually impaired to be held September 15, 2007.
